Abstract:   (95 Views)
Background: Systemic Lupus Erythematous (SLE) and Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) are autoimmune diseases in which the antigen-antibody system plays an important role. As blood group and Rh stem from superficial antigens on the red blood cell surface, we aimed to determine the distribution of ABO and Rh blood groups in SLE and RA and its association with disease manifestations. 
Method: This cross-sectional study was conducted on 434 SLE and 828 RA patients. We evaluated the distribution of ABO and Rh blood groups among RA and SLE patients. 
Results: This study projected that in lupus patients, autoimmune Coombs positive hemolytic anemia was more frequent among the B blood group. Arthritis was more common in the Rh-positive group. In the RA group, there was no relation between blood group and Rh and Rheumatoid factor (RF) and anti-Cyclic Citrullinated Peptide (anti-CCP) seropositivity. It should be noted that the distribution of ABO and Rh blood groups was not different between RA and SLE.
Conclusion: More frequency of blood group B in hemolytic anemia and positive Rh in arthritis in lupus patients hypothesized the probable role of ABO blood group antigen in some manifestations of lupus.
